Bold City Brewery "Mad Manatee IPA"
12 oz. can, coded "212 14 11:33"
$1.67 @ Winn Dixie #0199, Jacksonville, FL

Appearance: Very hazy orange-copper body with visible particulate in suspension - most likely from dry hopping. The frothy off-white drops steadily to a wide collar. Lacing is average.

Aroma: Citrus and pine over a gentle golden caramel drizzled malt base.

Flavor: Bright hops combine citrus and pine with a subtle berry-like fruitiness (that could be from hops or yeast). A golden caramel character gives the grainy and biscuity malt charm, and it remains sweetish against a just-enough-to-balance bitterness along with a subtle, underlying tartness that's really quite unique. It finishes dry with lingering notes of pine and spice.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and moderately crisp before warming in the mouth to soften and become almost smooth.

Overall: A straightforward, clearly crafted IPA that's an accessible, reliable, and drinkable beer.

Medium hops, not complex, but pleasing. Good with pub food, and popular with our group.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Citrus and a little grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a hint of malt. Seems to be a lighter IPA, but still good.
